    Deadpool 2

    An obnoxious, yet entertaining comedy full of violence and meta jokes. Not really original or groundbreaking in any way, but it was never pretending to be.

    This movie is really dumb, and it works best when it uses that to its advantage. Cable's very serious backstory is so forgettable, as is much of the surrounding plot with the Julian Dennison character. The jokes are so constant, that about half of them don't land, but that's okay with me.

    ★★★½

    Not as good the second time around, but still really fun! Most of the comedy holds up really well, and the VFX are just as impressive. It's wild to me that this movie only had a ~$50 million budget. It looks great! Hoping for more ridiculous jokes and violence in the sequel. This film isn't meant to be profound or deep in any way, it's dumb fun with hints of genius. Ryan Reynolds owns it.

    Also... really hoping Rob Delaney's Peter character absolutely steals the show in DP2 and demands a spin-off.

    This movie is a mess. Thoroughly entertaining and dark, but kinda all over the place.

    I sat in silence, shocked, as the credits rolled. I'm gonna need a second viewing asap.

    I felt anger, sadness, and frustration above anything else. I'll need some time to think if I loved this movie or not. It definitely left me a bit bummed.

    Ughhhhgggghghh, idk. It was fun, but damn.

    This was stressful as hell. John Krasinski pulls heavily from the Hitchcock handbook to build suspense, not relying on cheap jump scares. I would have loved to have had a completely silent audience, but that's just a rare luxury these days. People are still gonna look at their damn phones, and make hushed comments to their friends. I did appreciate the one girl in the theater who aggressively shushed a loud asshole twice. I think Krasinski crafted a film that…
